Here is a hard won Jack Rainbow Trout that I'm suitably proud of. I got broken off on new 5lb tippet by an even stronger fish in the same area of that Lake, and lost a couple of others around the hook up, over the 2 days of the weekend.
Spring is just around the corner, it was positively hot on Saturday 18th August, and these guys are in prime and aggressive condition. This bad boy took 5-10 mins to bring in, even on 8lb tippet! He kept getting his wind again and powering back into the lake. See the bead head in his mouth, nice in securely hooked this time thank goodness. One to feed the community :-)
